You'll need:

With cone pliers bend the wire to do the blade of the key. Hammer only the curve.

Step 3: Bow

Always using the cone pliers, bend the wire to do the bow. I chose a clover shape. Hammer only the curves!

Step 4: Cut

With clipper, cut the wire behind the center of the curves, so it will be hide.

Step 5: Jump Ring

Looking good! No one knows how hard it can be to get loops to match until you try it.

Very nice design, I like it! :D

Try to make a music note, too. I think it can be really good :)

Good idea ;) If you look in Mrballeng Ible, you'll find the clef I've made. At school I have a cat (>^.^<) I made to uise as standing paper clip, with the same technique.
